University of Houston - Clear Lake

Team Name:



2700 Bay Area Blvd., Houston, TX 77058











  • In 2018, U.S. News & World Report ranked UH-Clear Lake among “Best Regional Universities in the West.” The publication also ranked UH-Clear Lake nationally among the best colleges for veterans and best value schools.
  • UH-Clear Lake’s centers of excellence provide focused educational opportunities to the community and include the Exercise and Nutritional Health Institute, Cyber Security Institute, Center for Robotics Software, Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities, Environmental Institute of Houston, and Center for Executive Education.

Located halfway between Houston and Galveston near NASA Johnson Space Center, University of Houston-Clear Lake helps the community soar by providing educational solutions to the area and beyond. UH-Clear Lake greeted students in fall 2018 with two new state-of-the-art facilities: the Recreation and Wellness Center and the STEM and Classroom Building. A new residence hall will open fall 2019 to complement the university’s privately operated apartments. At UH-Clear Lake Pearland Campus, the Health Sciences and Classroom Building will open in spring 2019.

The university offers more than 80 bachelor’s and master’s degree programs, as well as three doctoral programs. Several new degrees debuted in fall 2018, including a Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering, a Master of Science in clinical mental health counseling, and Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in occupational safety and health. The university includes four colleges—business, education, human sciences and humanities, and science and engineering. Founded for NASA as an upper level and graduate university in 1974, UHCL welcomed freshman and sophomore students for the first time in 2014.

Students explore a diverse cultural scene and varied social opportunities through approximately 100 campus organizations, including honor societies, leadership groups, and social clubs. Nearby parks and waterways offer hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, and other outdoor recreation.
